I needed a partial hysterectomy due to uterine fibroids. He did a wonderful job of removing the uterus laparoscopically. I didn't worry before the surgery because I knew I was in the hands of a very skilled surgeon. I think he knows he's great and has a bit of a doctor's ego; but that's okay, I would recommend him to anyone needing surgery.

Dr. Friedman saw me last year for a Uterine cancer Problem. He was fast and efficient in getting me ready for Surgery for a needed complete Hysterectomy . He was totally professional and encouraging. He has a wonderful sense of humor and bedside manner. The procedure was a sucess, and After the procedure He went far and above, to catch a misdiagnoised slide which could have been disasterous for me , but he caught it had an expert opinion done. I highly recommend Him and his wonderful Staff.
